To all a.netters:
You know me as the amicable 18 year old all-american aviation enthusiast. I have tried very hard to push this image down your throat, but now, I must come clean. My real name is Maxwell Tate, I am a british citizen living in Exile in the United states.
I come from an abusive family. At the age of ten, I ran away from my home in Yorkshire, and ended up in the back alleys of London picking up scraps of rubbish to fill my stomach. Disease is not foreign to me. When I was 15, I met two other people, for their sake I will call them Peter and David. We became fast friends, and formed the british underground punk band "Yorkshire Underground." We were set to do an american tour, then the bottom dropped out.
Peter went on a drug binge that nearly killed him. It did so much damage that he now lives in the psychiatric ward. David died when he was hit by a drunk driver. I became a recluse.
Now I search the internet trying to find some semblance of community. Something of what was once my former self. For money, I photoshop pictures of myself and sell them to websites that specialize in stupid internet forum postings.
I'm sorry I made you all believe I was something I am not. I hope you can forgive me for the lies that I have perpetrated.
And all at once the crowd begins to sing: Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same
